What is CASA all about anyway?

CASA is a national, volunteer-based organization that trains people to become volunteer advocates for children. CASA of Seneca, Sandusky, and Wyandot Counties is a non-profit agency and has been serving locally abused and neglected children since 1990!


Our mission

We believe children deserve a safe, permanent, and supportive environment to live.


Our Vision

By drawing on community resources to accomplish the goals of child protection, CASA will provide a trained Guardian ad Litem for every child in Seneca, Sandusky, and Wyandot Counties who requires one.

BCI/FBI Background Check Service  

The Tiffin and Fremont CASA offices offer the service of conducting National WebCheck BCI and/or FBI background checks by scanning your fingerprints and mailing results to employers or other agencies. It is $35 for a BCI check, $40 for an FBI check, or $65 for both a BCI and FBI check. We accept cash, check, or credit. Please call either office to set up an appointment and arrive with your ID, and the BCI/FBI form filled out, including the reason codes and where the results are being sent to.


Internship Opportunities    

CASA of Seneca, Sandusky, and Wyandot Counties offer internships in the different county offices. Intern positions encompass a wide range of activities and fields of study. If you are planning on a career working with children and families, working in a not-for-profit agency, working in a court setting, advocacy work, or performing public relations/awareness work, this internship would be very beneficial and interesting!

Where it all started 

Seneca County

Our CASA program began in Seneca County in 1990 when the Seneca County Task Forced noticed the large number of child abuse cases being reported, and so they recommended that a CASA program be started. With the help of Seneca County Juvenile Court Judge Gerald Meyer and the Family Preservation Council, as well as funding from the Mental Health Services Board, the Seneca County Commissioners, and Tiffin-Seneca United Way, our program was born!

Sandusky County

The need to help children continued to be great, so with the approval from the Sandusky County Juvenile Court Judge Brad Culbert, the Sandusky County program was added in 1992.

Wyandot County

The work didn't stop there! Wyandot County was added in 1998 with the help of Wyandot County Commissioners. From this point on, we were CASA of Seneca, Sandusky, and Wyandot Counties!
